Chemical Oceanography is fundamentally interdisciplinary. The chemistry of the ocean is closely tied to ocean circulation, climate, the plants and animals that live in the ocean, and the exchange of material with the atmosphere, cryosphere, continents, and mantle. oceanographic research vessels, and satellites have only been used.

Chemical Reference Materials: Setting the Standards for Ocean gton, DC: The National Academies Press. doi: / Oceanographic chemical sensing is a new and expanding field which has seen rapid recent development, and the increasing demand to make these types of measurements will ensure continuing technological advances. Chemical Sensors in Oceanography details the state-of-the-art of oceanographic chemical sensor research. It identifies the novel areas. As far as can be determined, the first NSF grant (listed under Earth Sciences) that could be described as focused in some area of chemical oceanography was awarded to T.J. Chow and T.G. Thompson of the University of Washington, "Distribution of Some Minor Elements in Seawater" ().Things picked up in and through the IGY, NSF's Earth Sciences funded . Chemical Reference Materials: Setting the Standards for Ocean Science is part of an evolving body of work being conducted by scientists and research sponsors interested in ensuring the quality control of oceanographic data. Chemical data collected during ongoing and future global oceanographic studies and time-series efforts must be comparable.

Chemical Oceanographers will typically start with a hard science degree. Chemistry is ideal, and math and biology should form a large part of your minors and elective choices. The key is to ensure that you get a good grounding in degree-level science. Statistics would also be very helpful. Although scientific openings will be open to you, you. Chemical Oceanography - CRC Press Book Over the past ten years, a number of new large-scale oceanographic programs have been initiated. These include the Climate Variability Program (CLIVAR) and the recent initiation of the Geochemical Trace Metal Program (GEOTRACES). Oceanography (compound of the Greek words ὠκεανός meaning "ocean" and γράφω meaning "write"), also known as oceanology, is the study of the physical and biological aspects of the is an important Earth science, which covers a wide range of topics, including ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the . Oceanographic research vessels carry out research on the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of water, the atmosphere, and climate, and to these ends carry equipment for collecting water samples from a range of depths, including the deep seas, as well as equipment for the hydrographic sounding of the seabed, along with numerous.
